Steak Night Mondays

The first time we went for the 'steak night' we were impressed by the value for money! £20 all in for a steak dinner and glass of wine.... Not bad at all!! The second time it was just as good.... Lovley bit of rump steak , cooked exactly as asked...tasy mushrooms, tomatoes and onion marmalade... read more

Really enjoyed Number 27 -- friendly and attentive staff, not too loud in the dining room, very lively pub in the front, good beer selection, excellent food (we ate there twice, my wife had the salmon both times, I had the steak and ale pie on evening and a steak the second time), great location. We highly recommend it!

Busy and friendly. Food and drink both very good. Not a gourmet experience but that's not what we were after. Certainly did it for us, and we'd return. Music was good too.

GF friendly (including waitstaff who eat that way themselves) and hearty food. They found us a wee table in the back, even without reservations, which I soon learned are essential on a weekend in Inverness. We had the pork chops with apple chutney, which was excellent. I heard the man sitting at the table behind me raving about the cheesecake,... More

The B&B where I’m staying here in Inverness recommended Number 27 based on my vegetarianism, and it didn’t disappoint. After traveling for about 36 hours by plane and train, I was looking for a place close, quick, and easy, and this was ideal on all counts. The staff is friendly and efficient, although not chatty. The decor is pleasant without... More

The positives: 1. The menu is posted outside, and had “GF” clearly indicated for gluten free options. There were many such options on the menu. 2. The bartender/waitress was attentive to our needs, and was prompt in asking if we were ready to order. We weren't. 3. The bartender was able to recommend a nice stout ale to accompany the... More

Great food in my opinion .. Had a roast beef dinner with all the trimmings at the bargain price of £8.95 Have been many times and will go back! Don't really like the chips which are like Macdonalds takeaway chips! Desserts are scrummy

This is right across the street from the Castle. Great food, great drink. We went at least twice. Parking is tricky - you can try across the street during certain times. But all in all I recommend Number 27. We really enjoyed it.

We would've taken a photo of the food we just ate, but it looked so nice we just started eating it without thinking! It was delicious which is why I'm writing this review whilst still here using the free wifi. It does get busy so phone and book a table.
